The word is out! She said “yes” and Guy Ritchie could not be any happier. Recently confirmed by UsMagazine.com, the British director proposed to his longtime girlfriend, Jacqui Ainsley. Ritchie, 44, and Ainsley, 30, were at a dinner date last Sunday at Madeo Restaurant in L.A., where she showed off both her baby bump and her round-cut engagement ring. The baby-to-come will be the second child for Ainsley with her fiancé, one which she revealed to the world on the red carpet at the London premiere of the movie, The Dark Knight Rises. The happy couple has been dating since 2010. Before Ainsley, Ritchie ended an eight year marriage with Madonna in 2008, and shares two sons with her.
What are some cute ways to propose to your pregnant girlfriend?
Although proposing to your girlfriend after she is pregnant may be a reversal of traditions, it is still as romantic and exciting as the original way. Depending on which trimester she is in, you may have limitations to the ways you can propose. However, with her being pregnant, you have the unique opportunity to get creative and even try to include your unborn child into the details. Here are a few ideas that are sure to make any proposal a huge success:
1. Written for the stars: If your girlfriend is near the end of her pregnancy, a great way to propose is to take her to the movies. Before you go, have the proposal, along with a picture of you two or the new baby, added to the advertisements shown before a movie. Then sit back, relax and enjoy the show. You can even invite your friends and family and let them be surprised as well. Contact your local cinema for the details.
2. Get the OBGYN involved: If your OBGYN is up for it, ask him/her to help you with the proposal at your next appointment. Have the doctor perform the normal consultation as they usually would. Towards the end of the visit, the doctor could “recommend” another supplement for overall health and well-being of both baby and mom. Watch her surprise as she is handed a prescription that states, “Will you marry him?”
3. A gift for the baby: Since the baby will need lots of things, why start clothes shopping right away. Buy a newborn onesie and have the words, “Will you marry my daddy?” added on it and wrap it nicely. You can give it to your girlfriend either alone over dinner or at a special time with friends and family around. It will be a wonderful proposal she remembers every time your newborn wears the onesie.
